John Bunny hopes to pleasantly surprise his wife, Julia Swayne Gordon, by getting rid of his unsightly freckles. He arranges for technician Flora Finch to give him a home treatment while his wife is at a bridge game. However, his anxiety to get her out of the house rouses deep suspicions in this fine Vitagraph comedy.

John Bunny was rapidly becoming the comedy superstar of the age, often paired with Miss Finch in a fat-and-thin combination. They are very good in this one, particularly Miss Finch, with her comic clumsiness. However, this movie belongs to Julia Swayne Gordon, whose slow burn as she grows increasingly suspicious and angry over her husband's imagined infidelity is a wonderful performance.

A good copy of this film is available for viewing on the Eye Institute site on Youtube.
